The Perfect Impression of You
Donna Haug
March 16, 2005

I have an awful time buying shoes. I can’t find anything that feels comfortable on my feet! Sometimes they feel great in the store, but then as soon as I start walking any distance in them, I start getting blisters or my feet start getting sore. Once I find a pair that is comfortable, I tend to wear them “to death”.

A few months ago, I desperately needed to entrust my comfy pair of sandals to their final resting place. I looked and looked for a pair of shoes to take their place. Finally, I found a pair that looked like they might do the trick. I walked back and forth in the store and thought, “These shouldn’t be too bad.” The very first time I wore them I could have cried. My feet hurt so badly after only 5 minutes of walking in them! How frustrating.

Over the next few weeks I kept wearing those sandals throughout the day as I stood teaching or walking around the house. Gradually they became more and more comfortable. Today, they are my “irreplaceable’s”. I wear them everywhere. When I look at them now I see something interesting. The imprint of my feet are indented into the shoes. Over time the perfect outline of my foot has molded itself into the insole. Between that and the new calluses in just the right places, I now have a comfortable pair of shoes.

When I noticed the imprint in my shoe, I started to wonder if my God has left His indelible imprint on my life. Has His influence so changed me that I am now permanently shaped in His image? I’m afraid I am somewhere in the middle of that process. But the more I allow Him to impact me through His Word and through spending time with Him in worship and prayer, the more I will be like Him. How I long for the day when we will be a perfect fit! I guess the absolute perfect fit will only happen after I have gone to my “final resting place.” But one thing I know. My Lord will not discard me at any point in the process – not in the beginning when the going is tough, nor at the end when I’m old and worn. He sees His imprint on my life and He loves me!

Lord Jesus, help me today to allow You to put pressure on me in just the right spots, so that firmly imbedded in the soul of my life will be the perfect imprint of my wonderful Savior.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

What an awesome analogy. It is so neat how the Lord can take our everyday activites and speak to us of His love and handiwork in and for us. Please know, your heart is being divinely impressed. Thank you for sharing the beautiful process, with us! - Nancy

Oh, how I needed that! That pressure or "refining fire" sure gets tough sometimes. You have graciously reminded me how truly good it is for me. Thank you!
